In this Shift session, we explore the topic of stereotypes that perpetuate the roles we each take on. According to the Women in the Workplace report, “Eighty-one percent of women have a partner who works full-time, compared to 56 percent of men. And as employees become more senior, this disparity between women and men grows: 72 percent of senior-level women have a partner who works, compared to only 37 percent of men at the same level.
In other words, men who rise in the workplace are significantly more likely to have a stay at-home partner than women at the same level. When it comes to household responsibilities, there is also a big gender disparity: 39 percent of women in dual-career relationships report doing most or all of the housework, compared to just 11 percent of men in dual career relationships.” So what we are doing to update our core partnerships to ensure that parity extends beyond the boardroom?
To help us take on this topic, we’ll hear a keynote address by Colleen Bailey, Vice President & General Manager, Retail Channel of Kohler Company, followed by a fireside chat between Colleen and NEWaukee’s CEO Angela Damiani.
